who: Elizabeth Lecourt
what: dresses made from maps aka Les robes geographiques
why: we love a good map! Or perhaps it's more that we love anything art-related that uses maps, perhaps they are what we call the ultimate collage material. Anyway, Elizabeth Lecourt constructs these beautiful garments from beautiful maps and we think that her work is wonderful - we're also quite pleased she's a Londoner so we'll be keeping are eyes peeled for upcoming London exhibits! You should also check out her her drawings and handkerchiefs quirky and also beautiful.
